At Rubin and Rudman LLP, diversity, equity and inclusion are among our highest values and greatest goals. We are dedicated to nurturing and sustaining an inclusive and equitable environment that attracts, advances, and retains diverse and creative people of all backgrounds.
Our goal is to provide an environment where all our people are valued for being their true authentic selves. We are passionate about partnering with and supporting our clients and the community to advance inclusion and diversity. While our Rubin and Rudman colleagues share a common passion for the practice of law and providing outstanding customer service to our clients, we are in many ways a very diverse and unique group of individuals. It is our diversity of personal life experiences, values, beliefs and ideas that differentiates us as an employer of choice.
At Rubin and Rudman, we acknowledge that our journey towards achieving the firm’s DEI goal is just beginning, but we are committed to moving forward every day until we attain our goal.
Our goal is to provide opportunities for personal and professional growth to all of our employees regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or gender expression. We encourage everyone to be “who they are” and we value their unique talents, experiences, differences and perspectives.
We seek to provide opportunities for change, growth, involvement and ally-ship where we can make a difference for our firm and the community we serve.
Our firm is proud to support organizations that share our values and are committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the communities where we live and work.
Some of those organizations include:
- Justice Resource Institute
- Massachusetts Black Lawyers Association
- Massachusetts LGBTQ Bar Association
- Massachusetts Women’s Bar Association
